Iranian Intelligence ministry arrests Sunni youths.


At least eight young people have been arrested by the regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) in the Iranian cities of Mahabad and Bukan.

On May 30, two Sunni brothers, Ali and Farooq Mavot were arrested in their home by MOIS agents who beat them before transferring them to an unknown location. Ali was previously arrested in 2012 for his religious activities and spent three years in prison.

Six more youths were arrested in Mahabad last week, following a raid of their homes by Intelligence Ministry agents. They were all transported to unknown locations and information regarding their current condition has not been supplied. Their names are Mokhtar Ebrahimi, Yousef Ahmadian, Arsalan Besharat, Yousef Zoodi, Khaled Ak and Younes Zoodi.

Mr. Besharat is the older brother of Khosrow Besharat, a political prisoner, who was told on Sunday, that he had been sentenced to death, along with six other Sunni prisoners incarcerated in Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison (North West of Tehran). Their trial was presided over by the notorious Judge Moghiseh who has issued death sentences for a large number of political opponents, particularly those involved with the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, PMOI

The other prisoners incarcerated with him are Davoud Abdollahi, Kamran Sheikheh, Farhad Salimi, Anvar Khezri, Qassem Abasteh and Ayoub Karimi. They have been in prison since 2009 and have spent the last seven years suffering immense physical and psychological torture.
